People in New Orleans, like other parts of the country, speak of collisions on the roadways as accidents. In one sense, they are rightly called car accidents because few people would strike another vehicle on purpose. In another respects though, only a handful of collisions are accidents in the sense that no one could have done anything to prevent them.
A young New Orleans police officer died while off duty and riding his personal motorcycle. He just moved because his girlfriend was transferred to the area for work.
